The FAA has announced that it will open registration for its annual Airport Design Challenge on Nov. 1, 2021. The science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-focused competition allows K-12 students to design virtual airports using the popular game Minecraft. The challenge includes five weeks of organized lesson plans covering topics such as airport layout, pavement, lighting, structures and growth.

“The Airport Design Challenge is a perfect fit of science, technology, engineering and math which is so much a part of what we do at the FAA and so important to pass on to the next generation,” said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson.
